CX-Q Series

Network Amplifiers for the Q-SYS Ecosystem

 

CX-Q Series network amplifiers combine a legacy of robust power amplifiers, advancements in high-efficiency output devices, and native network transport, control and monitoring capabilities of the Q-SYS Ecosystem.  CX-Q Series features four-and eight-channel models, capable of delivering customized power output loading and a total maximum power of up to 8000 W. Low impedance, 70 V or 100 V direct drive are available on all channels.

Seamless drag-and-drop integration with Q-SYS, providing audio transport, control and rich status data, providing superior system performance far beyond third-party amplifier solutions.

5th generation high-efficiency, Class-D hybrid powertrain design built upon the dependable PL380 PowerLight™ amplifier platform, offering both high voltage and high current operation with excellent audio quality and thermal performance.


Two QSC signature technology innovations (FlexAmp™ and FAST Technology) are combined to allow for asymmetric output channel loading and support a wide variety of load options, making for an incredibly versatile amplifier platform and eliminating the need for multiple specialty amplifiers.

 

 

  • “Q” models feature Q-SYS connectivity and eight local mic/line inputs for additional on-ramps to the Q-SYS Ecosystem.
  • “Qn” models offer Q-SYS network connectivity only (no local mic/line inputs) for reduced  cost savings when local inputs are not needed.

Eight bi-directional GPIO connections, accessible anywhere on the Q-SYS network, provide further control integration opportunities for third-party peripherals.


Built-in energy saving modes ensure that CX-Q Series amplifiers draw the minimum amount of AC power while still providing outstanding audio quality.
